CEO Peter Larsson’s comments:
“I am proud to note that Pointsec sales in 2006 exceed SEK one half billion. During 2003, sales were slightly less than SEK 100 M, and growth over the three-year period since then has been fantastic.

The acquisition of Reflex means that Pointsec is broadening its offering with solutions that help IT and security managers control the use of communication ports on the company’s computers. By protecting the computer’s endpoints, companies can prevent transmission of sensitive data via USB memories, for example, to computers and systems external to their own IT environment.

It is on the basis of this success that we will now go forward as part of Check Point. We will gain access to a broader network of partners and resellers, and continue our international expansion.”
